Summer is here! (drawing of the day + reading recommendation) / Ljeto je tu! (crtež dana +preporuka za čitanje)!


Today's fashion illustration is that- of a swimsuit! Very appropriate for this heat. What's your favourite thing about Summer? Is it eating ice-cream without a guilty conscience? That magical scent of Summer rain? Is it waking up ridiculously early, but instead of a cold darkness being greeted by a gentle dawn? Or is the way days tend to last longer, but still fly by so far? Is it the long evening walks? I know, I know...so many glorious things to choice from, who could name just one. 


Današnja modna ilustracija je - ona kupaćega kostima. Vrlo prikladno za ovu vrućinu. Koja je vama najdraža stvar kod ljeta? Jedenje sladoleda bez grižnje savjesti? Čarobni miris ljetne kiše? Buđenje smiješno rano ujutro, a umjesto hladne tame tamo čeka  nježna zora? Ili je to što se čini da dani traju dugo, a opet tako brzo prolete? Ili su to duge kasne šetnje? Znam, znam...toliko toga se može odabrati, tko bi odabrao samo jednu stvar.

Summer. Wearing a one piece swimsuit as a top. Why not? Time when we get to feel like a queen of a jungle- even if the only jungle we have ever seen is a concrete one. Summer. Time when imagination roars wild. Summer. The smell of roses in city gardens. Summer. Daily visit to library. 

Ljeto. Nošenje jednodijelnoga kupaćega kao topa. Zašto ne? Vrijeme kada se možemo osjećati kao kraljica jungle, čak i kada je jedina jungla u kojoj smo bili ona urbana. Ljeto. Vrijeme kada mašta divlja. Ljeto.  Miris ruža u gradskim vrtovima. Ljeto. Dnevni posjeti knjižnici.

Besides sharing this illustration, I would also like to recommend two books to you: Eva Luna by Isabel Allende and Selected Poems by Marina Tsvetaeva. I already wrote a book review for Eva Luna, you can read it here. I've been a fan of Allende's writing for a while (here is a review I wrote for another book of hers). I don't have a review for Marina yet, it might take me a while to write it. You can find some of Tsvetaeva's poetry (translated in English) on wikipedia here

Osim ove ilustracije, voljela bih vam i preporučiti dvije knjige: Eva Luna od Isabel Allende i Izabrane pjesme Marine Cvjetajeve. Napisala sam već ogled knjige za Evu Lunu, možete ga pročitati ovdje. Već sam duže ljubitelj spisateljice Isabel Allende (još jedan ogled možete pročitati ovdje). Za Marinu nemam još ništa napisano, a možda će mi i trebati još vremena da nešto napišem. Neke njezine pjesme možete pročitati u hrvatskom prijevodu ovdje.

  7. Divno, divno! Jao nemoguće je nabrojati što sve volim kod ljeta kad ima toliko stvari, mene je recimo najmanje briga za kupanje (doslovno mislim da bi mogla ljeto preživjeti i bez kupaćeg jer me stvarno ne privlači plivanje), ali me možda najviše veseli dužina dana.

    1. ja prije nisam izlazila iz mora i ljeto mi se vrtilo oko kupanja, ali ove godine sumnjam da ću moći i otići do plaže, tako da više uživam u drugim stvarima.

  8. This illustration is a perfect capture of the summer spirit! My favorite thing about summer has to be the longer days and the carefree feeling that the season carries.

  11. I think wearing a one-piece with a skirt is a perfect summer look! And I love as usual your drawing - this time it is so wonderful summerly and now I'm only a bit sad I don't own a swimsuit like this :) Happy Thursday, dear Ivana!

  13. Summer's here already, we are facing another heatwave, mercury is climbing up to 98F. Well as long as the A/C is running fine, I am not complaining, at least not too much, lol. Another good illustration, Ivana.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…

What To Do in Split City in Autumn/ Winter?

Today I'm back with a list of suggestion of things to do in Split city during autumn and winter. There are many benefits to visiting seaside during the colder months. First of all, it's not as crowded as it is during the summer. Secondly, you can still get all the health benefits that your typical seaside provides. If you're looking for some sea therapy, this might be the perfect place for you. The climate is another thing to consider. The sea, like any large surface of water, does a great job of balancing the temperatures. Mediterranean sea is quite warm and its bay sea (i.e. the Adriatic sea) is no exception. Swimming is not out of the question and even if you're not up for that, you can still enjoy the benefits of mild winter temperatures. One thing I love about the change of seasons is that it gives me a feeling that I'm in a whole new country. If you loved Croatia in summertime, why not try visiting it in wintertime? Moreover, the accommodation is obviously m…

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…
